Faro de Fisterra, Finisterre

Lighthouse
Take the time to walk out to Faro de Fisterra, a lighthouse on a famous cape. As the nearest lighthouse to the Americas, the farthest west in Europe, it was appreciated by sailors as their last glimpse of home before many long days at sea. However, its bright beam served a much greater purpose: Its light reaches 65 km (40 mi) away, warning ships about this rocky coastline, known as the Coast of Death because of the many shipwrecks. Take a look at the collection of paintings inside. For travelers who use our world travel planner, Finisterre holidays become easier to arrange, with trips to the Faro de Fisterra and other attractions mapped out and timetabled.

  • I was amazed at the amount of people who had been arriving, there is even a hotel next to the lighthouse. But see the landscape is worth, you can put in the place of those who thought that the world had just on the horizon. There is an Esplanade a bit more away from the lighthouse and the crowd where the view is equally impressive and you can sleep with your van/motorhome. There you can watch the sunset over the immensity of the sea and spend a night by the flashes of light from the lighthouse, unforgettable.

  • camino santiago de finistera terminates here!
  • End of the Earth "Fisterra" and end to the Camino de Santiago, " The Way" if you walk to the light house, a very steep clime on roadway. Usually windy and wet mist. Extreme satisfaction to the end of a walk across Spain.
  • The views on a clear day are spectacular. On the other hand the cheesy gift shop selling off the shelf common nick nacks is common of all Spanish tourist spots. Don't be put off by the short walk, and explore the paths off the road.
  • arrived here at the end of my camino back in May. Unreal sight and real sense of satisfaction to be had. will never forget the views
  • The end of one road and the beginning of the next. Give yourself time to reflect.
